The bowl is one of the objects claimed by Domenico Pini to have been excavated by him in June/July 1901 at the Giubiasco necropolis, but may have been bought, or found at nearby Pianezzo (Tori et al. 2004: 27 f., 64 f., 69). The forged grave complex is described in Tori et al. 2004: 246. See also Ulrich 1914 I: 615.

The bowl can be classified as a bowl with inward-bending rim (type 2) according to the typology in Pernet et al. 2006: 221, dated to LT D/Augustan period.
